The record of high temperatures for
August for thirty years was broken yes

Never before since the establishment
of the weather bureau has such a temper
ature been recorded in August and only
four times has it reached even so high u
mark as 100 degrees. Of these four the
first was on Aiig. 20. 1879. and the others
on Aug. 5. € aDd 7 of last year.
In the record for the entire thirty year's
yesterday’s temperature has been exceed
ed bin twice: July 11 end 12, 1879. when
the maximum temperature was 103 and
105 respectively. Only five times in the
same length of time has it been equalled,
each time in July, the years being '75, ’79,
'SI. ’B7, and ’97.
Next to the temperature of yesterday
and the equally high mark made in 1897,
the highest in recent years is the point
reached on May 30. 1898, when 101 degrees
was reached, which was the highest point
ever recorded for a May and the record
for the year of ’9B.
Observer Boyer, in charge of the
Weather Bureau, attributes the unusual

Mr. Tarver's Proposition to the City
Asa starter for a free public library,
Tarver, the old book man, at Turner’s
Hall, offers the city his entire collees
tion on what he considers a reasonable
plan. In case the city rejects or cannot
accept his offer Mr. Tarver says It is open
to any other city—first come first served.
The plan Mr. Tarver proposes Is for
the city to approximate the value of the
library and either buy outright or he will
loon the Mbrary and run it under a board
of directors appointed by the Mayor end
A public bathhouse in connection with
the library Mr. Tarver thinks would be
a good thing. Mr. Tarver was one of the
charter membe.rs of the Y. M. C. A. with
Col. R. D. Locke and Col. A. N. Wilson
and E, F\ Cunningham and others who
were Its organizers and promoters, ond
first recommended a reading room for
the association in 1886.
Needing a home for his library, Mr. Tar
ver suggests either of the following ways
for the city to adopt: Furnish a suitable
home or lend him money or buy outright
hie collection and present it to the city as
a starter for a free library.
Mr. Tarver will petition the
City Council 10-morrow night to
appoint a committee to take un
der advisement the feasibility of taking
charge of the library which he proposes
to sell or loan for a number of years. In
either case, Mr. Tarver offers to run the
library upon the most economical plan.

Two white boys were seen climbing over

C LAIM HIM FOR A REPI BLICAV
j (’apt. Blon Makes the Assertion of
C'apt. Henry McAlpin.
The use of the name of Capt. Henry
' McAlpin as a prospective Republican
; candidate for congressman from this dis
-1 trict has caused no end of speculation.
| Capt. MeAlpin’s Democratic friends are
i inclined to view the report with some
doubt, while the leaders of the Republi
can faction, which is expected to put
him in nomination, all look wise and
declare that they have no information on
Capt. Henry Blun, Jr., supervisor of
the census, was one of those approached
on the subject yesterday. “I have not
the slightest idea that Capt. McAlpin will
be the candidate of any party in No
vember,’’ said Capt. Blun. "In fact, I
Know nothing about it beyond what I
have seen in the newspapers. I heard
some indefinite rumors to this effect a
few days before, but I have never heard
anything from Capt. McAlpin or from
any of the Republican leaders to indi
cate that he might be a candidate. Of
course, there can be no candidate until
the convention acts, and until that time
1 do not think any one will be able to
say who the candidate will be."
Capt. Blun holds, however, that Capt.
McAlpin is well fitted from a party
standpoint to make the race for which
he is mentioned. "Capt. McAlpin has
always been affiliated with t!te Republi
can party," he said. "He may not have
taken the trouble to put himself on rec
; ord, but his sympathies have always been
with the Republican party. He is like a
great many others here who are taken
for granted by their associates to be
Democrats, but who have held Republi
can view's for some time. It is no ad
vantage to them to assert their views,
but w'hen the proper time comes they are
ready to lake tv stand.”
Capt. Blun’s assertion that Capt. McAl
pin is n Republican of long standing will
be something of a surprise to those who
have never had reason to think him
otherwise than a thorough Democrat. It
would be no surprise, of course, to know
that ho is not in sympathy with some of
the principles now advocate by his party,
but in this category are to be found a
large number of citizens who have al
ways been and still consider themselves
Capt. McAlpin Is still out of the city.
H!s own statement of his position politi
cally will probably settle the question
w'here he stands and w'hether he is likely
to be a congressional candidate.
CASH DRIIVKRS EMPTIED.
M. Am Stokes* Store Entered and
M. A. Stokes* dry goods store, No. 14
Broughton street, east, was broken into
and robbed some time between midnight
Saturday and Sunday afternoon, when
the robbery was discovered.
The thief evidently wanted money, as
no goods were taken. Both cash draw
ers were pried open and emptied of .all
the cash they contained. Fortunately for
the proprietor, this amount was small,
probably not more than $5.
The robbery was discovered by Mr.
Stokes, who w'ent to the store in the af
ternoon. As soon as he entered he no
ticed that the money drawers had been
broken from their fastenings and were
lying on the floor empty. A careful in
spection of the stock showed that it had
not been disturbed.
The thief ernered the store from the
rear by prying open the door with a
heavy stove handle, which was found in
the yard when the premises w’ere subse
quently examined. An entrance to the
yard had been effected by climbing by
the aid of a telegraph pole in Congress
street lane to a shed, thence dropping
to the ground. The thief was evidently
familiar with the premises, and probably
knew just where he could secure such
tools as w'ould be needed, for in the yard
he found the stove handle and after en
tering. used for breaking into the drawers
a hatchet that in the dark could not
very well have been found by one unac
quainted with its location.
It had been the custom of Mr. Stokes
to leave the key on the inside of the rear
door after locking it at night. The thief
took the key with him, but dropped it in
bis flight, as it was found on the top
of a step ladder that the man had used

Many are still waiting. The checks are

About the only uncompleted work in

the country enumerators misunderstood
their instructions and forwarded these
schedules to Washington, instead of
sending them to the supervisor at Sa

MAYOR MYERS ON BRYAN.
| CANNOT CARRY NEW YORK OH ANY
EASTERN STATE, HE SAYS.

The Machine l>cmocrat*y Mtire In
terested in State and City Affairs,
flrjnn May Win by Carrying Some
of the Leading Western States,
llusiness Men Watching the Chi
nese Situation Very Closely—War
Among the Powers Would Serious
ly Interfere With American Ex
Mayor Myers returned to the city yes
terday after an absence of nearly a month
spent in New York. He has been looking
after the affairs of the Cuban-Ameriean
Manufacturing Company, one of the larg
l esc cigar manufacturing companies in the
country, during the absence of his broth
er, Mr. Sigo Myers.
Mqjfor Myers was on hand at his usual
hour at the City Exchange, relieving Act
ing Mayor Dixon, who has presided since
the departure of Acting Mayor Tiedeman,
chairman of Council. When seen by a
Morning News reporter the mayor said
that he brought back very little news of
interest. "It has been mostly business
with me." he said. " and I have given
very little time to recreation."
"How about the political situation?" he
was asked. "What are Bryan’s chances
in New York?"
“I don’t think that Bryan has the ghost
of a show* of carrying New York or any
other Eastern State," replied the mayor.
"It is true that my associations were
chiefly with the business men and I am
merely stating their views of the situa
tion. I did not circulate to any extent
gmong the politicians. The business men
occupy practically the same position to
day that they did in 1596. They voted for
McKinley in 1896 and they expect to vote
for him this year. There are a good many
who disagree with him in his imperial
istic views, hut they consider other ques
tions of superior importance and will vote
accordingly. The business element gener
ally seems satisfied with the manner in
which the administration is handling the
Chinese situation and approves the conser
vative policy announced by it on that
"But how about Tammany and the
Democrat Is machine? What will they ac
complish for Bryan?" the mayor was
“1 did not see any indications of any un
usual efforts in Mr. Bryan’s behalf by the
machine leaders." he replied. "They will
go through the usual performance and will
doubtless make a fair showing, but I do
not think they have the slightest hope of
carrying New York for Bryan. All their
efforts are being concentrated for the con
trol of state and municipal affairs. The
success of the national ticket is a sec
ondary consideration with them." "I do
not mean to say," said Mayor Myers,
"that Bryan cannot be elected, but whai
I do say is that if elected, his election
must come by the votes of the South and
the West. He has the South solid. Ken
tucky will go Democratic and perhaps
Maryland. He will not carry New' Y’ork.
New Jersey, Connecticut, or any other
Eastern state. The Democratic battle
must be fought in the large Western
states. Illinois is debatable ground. Bryan
has a fighting chance in Michigan and
Wisconsin, and Indiana looks very favor
able. It is possible for Bryan to win
without carrying a single Eastern state,
but it is an uphill battle."
As to the business outlook. Mayor Myers
said that present conditions are fairly sat
isfactory, and the prospects good, though
not unduly bright. A great deal depends
upon the outcome of the trouble in China.
"Our export trade," the Mayor said,
has reached vast proportions and has be
come of immense importance to the busi
ness of the country. Should the Euro
pean nations become embroiled because of
their inability to agree on a settlement of
the Chinese question, this trade would be
very seriously interfered with and busi
ness affected accordingly. It is this mat
ter which gives the business men serious
thought for consideration at present and
makes them uncertain of the future."
Personally Mayor Myers does not think
the Powers will go to war over China.
They are all too heavily in debt, he says,
end they realize that warfare under moi
ern conditions is a very expensive busi
CASE DRAWS TO ITS END.
Judgp TvrijrK* Will Make Final Ar
gument In Evans* Damnife Suit.
The much-tried case of Mrs. Elizabeth
Evans against the Savannah, Florida and
Western Railway is drawing toward Its
conclusion in the City Court. For five
days of last week the trial of the case
went on, and to-day the end is promised
Mrs. Evans is suing the company for
$20,000 damages for the homicide of her
husband, who wds killed by an engine
belonging to the company at Lakeland,
Fla. The evidence introduced has been
exceedingly and at time painfully volum
inous, the almost numberless points at
issue rendering this course necessary.
The law’ of the case was argued yes
terday by Judge Twiggs, for the plain
tiff, and Mr. Chisholm, for the defend
ant, and when the recess was taken the
latter had Just concluded his address to
the jury. Judge Twiggs will make his
arfgument to the Jury this morning, and,
with the charge of the court, the de

Every company, troop and battery of

will be represented on the range. The
Chatham Artillery has secured the loan
of a sufficient number of rifles from the
Guards to permit the practice of its men
on the range, and will from now on seek
to achieve a degree of proficiency with

labor under disadvantages that are not
present with the infantry and cavalry
commands are reasonable certain to make
a creditable showing when It comes their

A number of the residents and property
owners south of Anderson street have
signed a petition to be presented to Coun
cil to-morrow afternoon in which they
"call attention to the ordinance passed by
you over a year ago. requiring property
owners south of Anderson street to put
down sidewalks within a specified time.

The attention of Alderman Dixon, choir
man of the Street and Lane Committee,
and of Director Gadsden of the Public
Works department, was called to these
complaints of the Southsiders recently.
"The sidewalks ordinance referred to."
said Alderman Dixon, "does not require
the paving of ell sidewalks south of An
derson street. The ordinance simply re
quires the paving of certain north and
south streets and the property owners
were given considerable time in which to
comply with the ordinance. We were very
lenient with the property owners, giving
them the benefit of the full limit and some
times more. The time has about expired

HONORED DY THE AIM IIBISHOP.
Bishop Kelley a Guest nt the Prel
ate's Reception In New Y’ork.
Bishop Kelley of Savannah was a guest
of the reception committee which for
mally welcomed Archbishop Corrigan on
his return to New York from Europe a
few days ago. The reception was a nota
ble one. Archbishop Corrigan is one of
the most distinguished prelates of the
Roman Catholic Church in this country
and ho was welcomed from his tour
abroad by several hundred of the clergy
of New York.
The Archbishop returned on the St.
Louis. The reception committee, on a tug,
met the liner just inside of Sandy Hook.
At quarantine the Archbishop was trans
ferred to the tug and formally welcomed
by Bishop Farley of New York.
The Archbishop was greeted by
all of Ihe assembled clergymen,
who, kneeling, kissed his episcopal ring,
receiving his blessing in return. The Arch
bishop took a seat on a bench
and was talking to Bishop Farley
when Father Kean of St. James* church
brought forward the Rt. Rev. Dr. Keiley,
Bishop of 'Savannah, and presented him
to the Archbishop, w’ho invited the
Southern prelate to a seat on his left,
and during a considerable portion of the
time consumed in making the run to the
city conversed with him.
While abroad the Archbishop had six
audiences with the Pope. He made a re
port regarding the progress made in his
diocese during the past decade, and
showed the Pope an album containing
photographs end descriptions of all the
Catholic churches, monasteries, semina
ries, parochial schools, religious institu
tions, hospitals, nnd homes that come un
der his supervision. The Archbishop vis
ited the Passion Play at Oherammcrgau
and the Paris Exposition. In England,
he was the gues-t of Cardinal Vaughn.
While there the Archbishop was invited,
through Ambassador Choate, to attend
Queen Victoria’s garden party. After
leaving England, the Archbishop went to
Ireland, where he was the gues-t of Arch
bishop Walsh and of Thomas Kelly.
REFUSED A NEW TRIAL.
Oyitermen MnM Make Their Fight
Before* the Supreme Court.
Judge Falligant rendered a decision in
the Superior Court yesterday in the case
of the state against Lewis Fraser, the
particular question decided being the de
fendant’s right to anew trial, for which
a motion had been made by his counsel.
Fraser is one of the two-dozen negroes
indicted for gathering oysters from leased
beds, which is a misdemeanor under the
laws of the state. The men were proved
guilty of having abstracted oysters from
beds leased by Capt. Gus Oemler and sit
uated on Wilmington island and in the
adjacent waters. The motion for anew
trial was based on the usual statutory
grounds, that the verdict was contrary to
the evidence and that the charge of the
court was erroneous.
Judge Falligant’s decision overrules
the motion and denies the new trial which
is asked. The case is probably intended to
test the question, and in all likelihood
will be carried to the Supreme Court.
Messrs. W. W. Gordon, Jr., and Gignil
llat &. Stubbs, representing the interests
of Capt. Oemler. are prosecuting the cases
on behalf of the state, while the defend
ants are represented by Messrs. W. P.
La Roche and George W. Beckett.

with the law, the rule will be made ab

Under the terms of the rule nisi Hirsch
has about four months in which to re
cover from the illness with which he is
said now to be suffering. At the expir
ation of this period he may return to Sa
vannah nnd stand trial, as if nothing h.d
happened and without any prejudice to
his case. He may believe that by this
time Judge Falligant will have come to
the conclusion that the scare he has ad
ministrated to the proprietors of policy
lotteries is already sufficiently severe and
be willing to differentiate the punishment
then to be meted out from that inflicted
upon Henderson and Fulton. On the
other hand he may be content to permit
the l>ond to be forfeited and to stay
away from Savannah long enough to per

A little story that Judge Falligant tells
was reproduced in the Morning News of
yesterday, the moral of which was sup
posed to adorn the tale of Henderson and
Fulton and to illustrate the sympathy
that Hirsch would show’ them. The point
of the story lay in the offer of one boon
companion to join his friend at the bottom
of a ditch, in which the latter had fallen,
in lie of any ability on his part to get
the other out. The moral, of course, still
remains, but its application vanished
with the disappearance of Hirsch.

YOUNG LADIES’ COLLEGE.
Where Earli Pupil Receive* Person

Brenau College, formerly Georgia Fe
male Seminary, at Gainesville, Ga., is a
good place to educate your daughter. The
fact that it is not a sectarian school, de
pending upon religious denominations for
its support, but is a private enterprise,
owned by men who have invested all their
means in its upbuilding, is some reason
why you should patronize it. Girls at
this institution receive individual person

desires for his daughter. For handsome

A Fever-Stricken Camp.
Everett City, Ga., July 21, IfOO—I am a
strong believer in and advocate of the use
of Johnson's Chill and Fever Tonic. I
know what it will do. I have tried it in
Cuba and the low lands of Mexico. I
have been a soldier in my time and have
found the Tonic invaluable in cases of
camp fever. Only those who have been
in the tropics as soldiers can comprehend
the horrors of a fever-stricken camp,
miles and miles away from its base of
supplies. It was in such places that
Johnson’s Tonic came in. You did not
need any Calomel or quinine or
any other drug. Stick to the Tonic and
you will be able to eat embalmed beef
again. Yours very truly,
Chas. F. Roden.
